So once the fireplace has gone all hasta la vista baby…
we are having a cabinet built to take its place.
My inspiration came from the photo below…but for the life of me I can’t find the original source so I can’t credit it.
If you know the source, leave me a comment and I will link it up.
You know how marriage is about give and take and compromise?
Well, here’s the deal…
I pretty much have total freedom with decisions on the renovation…
for better or worse…my husband has blind faith in me.
But his ONE request…
was an 80 inch television.
That is one BIG mamma jamma.
my brilliant designer at Advance Design Studio took that photo and designed a cabinet that would house an 80″ tv and give me some pretty bookshelves as well!
The cabinet is 12 feet long and because this oddball bowling alley room is 30 feet long, this piece will look proportional.
Mucho better than the fireplace, no?
And now the tv won’t have to block the door which I’m pretty sure was a big ol FAUX PAS!
Man, I’m SO multi-lingual today.
The existing bookcases that were located on the opposite side of the room have been ripped out.
They took up valuable wall space and were not well made. The whole thing kind of slanted to one side.
They looked like something crazy Uncle Vinnie would build after knocking back a few cocoas.
The plan for the rest of the room?
Currently, the walls and ceilings are plaster and look like an archaeological dig site.
There are cracks and crevices and lumps and bumps…
I’m half expecting Abe Lincoln to come busting through at any moment.
So the walls and ceilings will be planked.
Similar to the cottage, but horizontal.
Cause hey…why not live on the edge?
Well, folks…there you have it.
Everything you never wanted to know about the future of our family room.
Back soon with details of what’s going on upstairs…
